Schoharie Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With great weather this week and good hatches going on the fish are starting to look up for their food. Most however are still feeding just below the surface. To be successful right now fishing a tandem rig will be necessary. Try tying a small dropper under a size #12 dry fly or a small nymph behind a little larger nymph. Most fish caught on our recent outings were on a size #16 Prince Nymph tied a foot behind a size #12 prince Nymph.

Seven-day forecast 

The cold start to the week will quickly evolve to summer like weather with a couple of days in the lower eighties. This should get the hatches really going again. There will be a slight cool down later in the week, but it should not cool down the bite. This could be the best week so far this new season.
